Racing TV presenter Angus McNae marks your card for today's action at Limerick, Naas and Carlisle. You can watch every race from those three fixtures live on Racing TV and Racing TV Extra. Irish racing expert Johnny Ward also has three bets for today - click here to view his selections.

1.40 Limerick: Feronily

This Emmett Mullins-trained gelding should complete a routine win in this maiden hurdle.

He was a useful bumper performer and finished third behind Champion Bumper winner A Dream To Share at the Dublin Racing Festival in February.

His hurdles debut at Kelso last time out came in the Grade Two Premier Novices' Hurdle, which was a big ask, and he faced rivals who had a lot more experience than him.

He ran creditably to be fourth, though, and this class drop gives him an ideal opportunity to get off the mark.

3.45 Naas: Paddington

Ryan Moore makes his way from Meydan on Saturday night where he rode a double to Nass this afternoon for three rides, and it is not inconceivable that he will ride a treble.

Paddington may well be the best of the trio; he was an impressive winner at the Curragh on his second start and may be underestimated by his opening mark of 97.

He stormed clear of his rivals that day to win by five lengths and he is entered in the English and Irish Guineas, plus the Derby, and his presence here rather than a higher grade must be on the basis that connections believe he is well treated.

He can provide Moore with at least one winner today.

4.00 Limerick: Happy Dreams

Having won over hurdles at Fairyhouse, this six-year-old returned to chasing with a good effort to finish second here, and is clearly in good form.

That race was won by the well-treated Made In The Woods who was afforded an easy lead, and a sizeable advantage, from the outset so, in the circumstances, Happy Dreams did well to get as close as he did to the winner.

He has already won a couple of chases and can record another win here today.

4.10 Carlisle: Piaff Bubbles

This seven-year-old comes here in good form having won at Wetherby two starts ago before finishing a good second at Hexham.

He remains well treated off a rating of 108 and the testing ground here is something that he handles well.

He's a strong traveller with plenty of stamina and was only worn down in the late stages on his last start.

This track should hold no fears, given his ability to handle a similarly stiff track at Hexham. He looks to be more progressive than his rivals and ought to go close again.
